This week, the whole school has the same Talk Time homework: I can pay and receive compliments to/from people outside of school.

This homework, which links to our living and learning statement, is an opportunity for children to discuss the benefits of paying compliments to people. Here are some questions that might shape your discussion:

  • How does paying a compliment make you feel?
  • How does receiving a compliment make you feel?
  • Why is it important to be sensible when paying or receiving compliments?
  • Can you compliment people too much?

Children should be ready to discuss what they’ve talked about at home by Thursday 28 March 2019. It would be even better if children were able to talk confidently about times when they have given, or received, a compliment.

Our homework this week is Creative: I can show my talents.

All of the children in our school are blessed with an array of talents. This week, our homework, which links to our living and learning statement (I can recognise my talents), gives our opportunity to celebrate and share their talents. Children should respond creatively and be ready to show off their talents to their peers as part of their homework review. They could do this in a range of ways:

  • create a short performance to show to their class
  • film themselves showing off their talent
  • make a collage of their many talents
  • produce a piece of art to show off their talents

There are, of course, many other ways that children could respond. Children should be ready to show off their talents by Thursday 21 March 2019.

This week, our whole school homework is Creative:

I can present a summary of our class novel so far.
Every class in our school is currently enjoying their class novel topic . As such, we’ve read quite a bit of our books. This week, children should summarise what they’ve read so far. A good summary would give an overview of what’s happened, focusing on key events and characters. There are many ways in which children could choose to respond to this but here’s a few ideas…

· use an app to create a movie trailer for what’s happened so far
· create a timeline of key events
· turn what’s happened so far into a short comic
· write a song, rap or poem about one of the main characters/events
· create an image about a key event
· draw a portrait of a main character and label their characteristics
However children decide to respond, their efforts will be celebrated as part of our weekly homework review in class. This homework is due by Thursday 07 March 2019.

This week, the whole school has the same creative homework which is due in on Thursday 14 February 2019.

I can show different ways to stay safe.

This week, we have enjoyed a staying safe themed week. We’ve had lots of visitors and covered a range of important safety-related topics. There are many ways, and many different situations, in which we need to keep safe: at home, at school, in our environment and online.

Children should think about the situations where they need to keep safe and who might help them to stay safe. This could be done in any creative way:

  • a story
  • a poem
  • instructions
  • a comic strip
  • an advert
  • an interview
  • a game
  • scenarios

…or any other creative ideas!

The homework will be reviewed as part of the themed week learning.
